^fe&LBGISLATIVE POWER OF THE 

\^ j^TATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA 

Is Vested (under the Constitution adopted 
in convention December 4, 1895), in 
tne •'Senate*' and tne "House of 
Representatives," together composing 
the "General Asembly.'' 

Constitutional Provisions. 

Annual Sessions — Held (in the State 
House) in Columbia on the second 
Tuesaay in January. No limitation on 
length of session, which by custom is 
usually forty uays. 

Adjournments — During the session "neither 
House siiall, witnout the consent of the 
otiicr, adjourn for more tnan three 
days, nor to any otner place than 
that in which it shall be at the time 
sitting." Should either house be 
without a quorum for 5 days, or 
should the two Houses disagree as to 
the time of adjournment, tlie Gover- 
nor may adjourn them to such time 
as he shall think proper. 

Salaries — "Members shall not receive any 
compensation for more than 40 days 
of any one session," regular and 
extra (by statute this is fixed at 
$200), and shall receive "five cents 
for every mile for ordinary route of 
travel in going to and returning from" 

i Columbia. "No General Assembly may 
increase the per diem of its own 
Members." 

Members Protected — "Members shall be 
^ protected in their persons and estates 
^ during their attendance on, 'going to 
" and returning from the General 

^ Assembly, and ten days previous to the 
^ sitting and ten days after the ad- 
journment," except where a Member is 
"charged with treason, felony or 
breach of the peace." 
Eight of Punishment — Each House mny 
punish by imprisonment during its 
sitting any non member guilty of dis- 
' respect, disorderly or contemptuous 

y\ behavior in its presence, or who shall 
T threaten harm to any member for 

P anything said or done in either House, 
' or who sball assault or arrest any 

person ordered to attend the House, 

• In going or returning, or who shall 

• rescue any person arrested by order 
» of the House. 

V Bills and Acts — "Bills for raising revenue 
^ shall originate in the House of Repre- 



sentatives." ''Every Act shall relate 
to but one subect, and that shall be 
expressed in the title." 

"No Bill shall have the force of law until 
read three times and on three several 
days in each House, has had the Great 
Seal of the State affixed, and been 
signed by the President of the Senate 
and the Speaker of the House." Under 
the Rules of both Houses, Bills are 
read the first and the third time by 
titles only. 

Terms of Office — "The terms of office of 
Members chosen at a general election 
begin on the Monday following such 
election." 

Oath of Office — All Members and all 
ott'oers before they enter upon their 
duties, shall subscribe to the follow- 
ing oath : "I do solemnly swear (or 
affirm) that I am duiy qualified, 
according to the Constitution of this 
State, to exercise the duties of the 
office to which I have been elected, and 
that I will, to the best of m- ability, 
discharge the duties thereof, and pre- 
serve, protect and defend the Constitu- 
tion of this State and of the United 
States. I do further solemnly swear 
(or affirm) that I have not since the 
first day of January, in the year 1881, 
engaged in a duel as principal or 
second or otherwise ; and that I will 
not, during the term of office to which 
I have been elected, engage in a duel 
as principal or second or otherwise. So

THE LEGISLATIVE POWER 

OF THE STATE OF 

SOUTH CAROLINA 

Is vested (under the Constitution adopted in 
Convention December 4, 1895), in the 
"Senate" and the "House of Representa- 
tives," together styled the "General As- 
sembly.'* 

General Consliluliona! Provisions Pertaining 

to Men^bers and Legislation. 
Annual Sessions — In Columbia, beginning on 
the second Tuesday in January. No limi- 
tation to length of session, which by cus- 
tom has usually been 40 days. It lasted 
47 days in 1919, 54 days in 1920, 54 days 
in 1921, 61 days in 1922 and 75 days in 
1923. 

In an effort to have the General Ap- 
propriation Bill introduced earlier in 1924, 
and thereby shorten the session, a recess 
was taken upon convening, January 8, 
until January 23, during which time 
the Senate Finance Committee and the 
House Ways and Means Committee held 
joint public sessions. The latter intro- 
duced the General Appropriation Bill on 
January 23, and it passed the House and 
was sent to the Senate on February 12, 
In 1923 the Bill was introduced on 
February 26, sent to the Senate on March 
1, returned to the House on March 15, 
and ratified on March 24. 

Adjournments — During the session "neither 
House shall, without the consent of the 
other, adjourn for more than three days, 
nor to any other place than that in which 
it shall be at the time sitting," Should 
either House be without a quorum for 5 
days, or should the two Houses disagree 
as to the time of adjournment, the Governor 
may adjourn them to such time as he shall 
think proper. 

Bills and Acts — "Bills for raising revenue 
shall originate in the House of Repre- 
sentatives." 

"Bills appropriating money out of the 
treasury shall specify the objects and pur- 
poses for which the same are made, and 
appropriate to them respectively their sever- 
al amounts in distinct items and sections." 



6 



Constitutional Provisions. 



"Every Act shall relate to but one sub- 
ject and that shall be expressed in the 
title." 

Bills shall not have the force of law 
until read three times and on three several 
days in each house, the great seal of the 
State affixed, and signed by the President 
of the Senate and the Speaker of the 
House. Legislative rules may (and they 
do) provide for the first and third read- 
ings by title only. 

Compensation of Members — "Members shall 
not receive any compensation for more than 
40 days of any one session." (Under Act of 
1920 salaries were placed at $400, effective 
with the 1921 session.) Compensation for 
extra session is same as for regular session. 
"No General Assembly phall have the power 
to increase the per diem of its own mem- 
bers." "Five cents for every mile for ordi- 
nary route of travel in going to and re- 
turning from" Columbia is allowed each 
Member. (By statute each Member receives 
$5 for stationery and postage.) 

Expulsion of Members — "Each house shall 
punish its members for disorderly behavior, 
and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, 
expel a member, but not a second time for 
the same cause." 

Holding Two Offices — "No person shall be 
eligible to a seat in the General Assembly 
while he holds any office or position of 
profit or trust under this State, the United 
State of America, or any of them, or under 
any other power, except offices in the Mili- 
tia and notaries public; and if any mem- 
ber shall accept or exercise any of the said 
disqualifying offices or positions he shall 
vacate his seat." — Const., Art. Ill, Sec. 24. 

Mp:mbers Protected — "Members shall be pro- 
tected in their persons and estates during 
their attendance on, going to and return- 
ing from the General Assembly, and ten 
days previous to the sitting and ten days 
after the adjournment," except where a 
Member is "charged with treason, felony or 
breach of the peace." 

Oath of Office — All Members and all officers, 
before they enter upon their duties, shall 
subscribe to the following oath: "I do 
solemnly swear (or affirm) that I am duly 
qualified according to the Constitution of 



Constitutional Provisions. 7 



this State, to exercise the duties of the 
office to which I have been elected, and 
that I will, to the best of my ability, dis- 
charge the duties thereof, and preserve, 
protect and defend the Constitution of this 
State and of the United States. I do 
further solemnly swear (or affirm) that I 
have not since the first day of January, in 
the year 1881, engaged in a duel as prin- 
cipal or second or otherwise; and that I 
will not, during the term of office to which 
I have been elected, engage in a duel as 
principal or second or otherwise. So help 
me God." 

Right of Punishment — Each House may 
punish by imprisonment during its sitting 
any non-member guilty of disrespect, dis- 
orderly or contemptuous behavior in its 
presence, or who shall threaten harm to 
any member for anything said or done in 
either House, or who shall assault or ar- 
rost any person ordered to attend the 
House, in poing or returning, or who shall 
rescue any person arrested by order of the 
House. 

Teems of Office — "The terms of office of 
Members chosen at a general election begin 
jn the Monday following such election." 

Veto by the Governor — Every Bill or Joint 
Resolution which shall be passed by the 
General Assembly shall, before it becomes 
a law, be presented to the Governor, and 
if he approves it he shall sign it. 

Any Bill vetoed by the Governor shall 
be returned, with his objections, to the 
House in which it originated. If two- 
thirds of that House agree, by yeas and 
nays, to pass it, it shall be sent to the 
other house, and if similarly approved 
thereby it shall have the same effect as if 
signed by the Governor. 

Only so much of the Bill as is not 
approved by the Governor shall be re- 
considered, the approved portions becom- 
ing a law. 

A Bill not returned by the Governor 
within three days after presentation to 
him, Sundays excepted, shall have the 
same force and effect as if he had signed 
it, unless the General Assembly, by ad- 
journment, prevent its return, in which 



8 



Constitutional Provisions 



case it shall have such force and effect 
unless returned within two days after the 
next meeting. 

(Governor may return Bill to the "next" 
house, even though a general election has 
intervened — Supreme Court decision, Smith 
V. Jennings, 67 S. C. 324.) 

(At 1919 session, which began Jan. 14, 
Governor returned Bill to Clerk of House 
on Jan. 16, after House had adjourned. 
Upon objection to its consideration on 
Jan. 17, Speaker Cothran ruled that the 
two-day Constitutional limit had been com- 
plied with, citing Corwin v. Comp. Gen. 
6 S. C. 398.) 

THE SENATE 

Composed of one Member elected from each 
of the 46 counties, elected for four years, 
so classified that one-half are chosen every 
two years. "When the General Assembly 
shall establish more than one county at any 
session, it shall so prescribe the first term 
of the Senators from such counties as to 
observe such clasification." 

Senators must be duly qualified electors in 
their own Counties at the time of their 
election, and must be at least 25 years old. 

THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES 

Composed of 124 Members chosen every second 
year, assigned to the several Counties so as 
to allow "one Representative to every 124th 
part of the whole number of inhabitants in 
the State," which ratio under the 1920 
U. S. Census is one Representative to 
every 13,578 persons in a county. 

Under the new reapportionment Act of 
1922, the counties of Florence and Rich- 
land each gain one member, and Bamberg 
and Marlboro each lose one. 

Each County constitutes one Election Dis- 
trict. Members must be qualified electors 
in their own Counties at the time of their 
election, and must be at least 21 years old. 

Special Statutory Provisions 

Effect of Repeal of Act — "The repeal of 
an Act shall not revive any law theretofore 
repealed or superseded, nor any office there- 
tofore abolished." 



Constitutional Provisions 



9 



Ex Officio Board Members — Every chair- 
man of a committee of either House who is 
ex officio a member of any commission or 
board shall remain a member after each 
general election and until his successor is 
appointed chairman of such committee, and 
in case of vacancy or disability between 
sessions the Speaker or the President shall 
designate some member of such committee 
to serve on the board until the next meeting 
or the disability is removed. 

Time When Act Takes Effect — The 20th 
day after the day of its approval by the 
Governor, unless some other day be special- 
ly named in the Act. (Construction by 
courts has' been : Exclude the first day, in- 
clude the last.) 



ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS 



"Resolution " 

A Resolution (sometimes called a "plain" 
or "simple" Resolution) affects only the ac- 
tion of the house in which it is introduced 
and the members thereof. 

"Concurrent Resolution" 

A "Concurrent Resolution" affects the ac- 
tion of the entire General Assembly or a 
member thereof; does not carry an appropria- 
tion ; does not have the force of law as an 
Act does, but records the sense of the two 
houses concurrently. 

"Act " 

An Act has the force of law until repealed, 
and is known as a permanent measure. The 
Bill for such Act must be read three times 
on three separate days in each house. 

"Joint Resolution " 

A Joint Resolution has the same force of 
law as an Act, but is a temporary measure, 
dying when its subject matter is completed.

' pose was expressly declared, as in Art. XV, 
Sec. 1, 'a vote of two-thirds of all members 
j elected shall be required for an impeachment,* 
I and in Art. XVI, Sec. 1, where, in proposing 
! amendments to the Constitution, 'two-thirds of 
the members elected to each house' must agree 
thereto." Smith v. Jennings, 67 S. C, page

"When the Constitution speaks of 'two-

pass a bill or joint resolution over the veto 
of the Governor, it means two-thirds of the 
house as then legally constituted and acting 
upon the matter. Whenever the framers of 
the Constitution intended otherwise, the pur- 
pose was expressly declared as in Art. XV. 
Sec. 1, 'a vote of two-thirds of all members 
elected shall be required for an impeachment,' 
and in Art. XVI, Sec. 1, where, in proposing 
amendments to the Constitution, 'two-thirds of 
the members elected to each house' must agree 
thereto." Smith v. Jennings, 67 S. C, page 
328.

message might be received. All Committees 
shall have leave to report by Bill or otherwise. 

RULE 23.

decision. 

RULE 24. 

WHEN AYES AND NOES SHALL BE ORDERED. 

Upon any question, at the resquest of any 
ten members, who may signify their request 
by rising, the ayes and noes shall be ordered;

vote aye, and all who vote no, which he shall 
enter on the Journal. 



RULE 25.

the first response has been made to the Clerk's 
call, the debate shall cease, the Doorkeeper 
shall close the door and keep it closed until 
the decision shall have been announced by the 
Speaker. 

After the door has been thus closed, no 
member, when called by the Clerk, shall say 
more than "aye" or "no." Every member 
who may be in the House when called shall 
(unless the House shall have before excused 
him from voting on the question), give his 
vote under the penalty of such proceeding as 
the House may, after decision, in its dis- 
cretion, adopt to punish his contempt. 

No member shall, under any circumstances, 
be permitted to vote after the decision shall 
have been announced by the Chair. After 
the decision of the question, a member absent 
may be permitted to record the vote he would 
have given if present, but such vote shall not 
affect the previous question. 

RULE 26. 

WHEN MEMBER SHALL NOT VOTE. 

No member shall vote on any question of 
a private nature in the event of which he is

120 Rules of the House 



RULE 27.

with his vote the House be equally divided, 
the question shall be decided in the negative. 



RULE 28. 

WHEN DEBATE IS IN ORDER. 

No motion shall be debated until it shall 
have been seconded and stated by the Speaker. 
When moved and seconded, any motion shall, 
if desired by the Speaker or any other mem- 
ber, be reduced to writing, and delivered in at 
the table and read, before it shall be de- 
bated. 

RULE 29.

148 The Confederate Monument 



CONFEDERATE MONUMENT 



Located on north plaza of State House. 
"Erected by the Women of South Carolina 
to South Carolina's Dead of the Confed- 
erate Army, 1861-1865." 

Historical. 

Erected by S. C. Monument Association, 
organized in Columbia Nov. 4, 1869. Owing 
to the government being in the hands of 
carpetbaggers and Africans, no attempt 
then made to use State House grounds or city 
street. Spot on Taylor (Arsenal) Hill, over- 
looking Sydney Park, bought, and contract 
made in July, 1873, with architects Muldoon, 
Walton & Cobb, of Kentucky. Granite for 
foundation and base given by Judge John 
S. Green, from his quarry on Congaree. 

As foundation was laid quicksand was 
struck. Directors of Elmwood Cemetery 
gave spot on crest of hill at entrance to 
cemetery, and work again started there. 
In 1875 the marble shaft and statue, wrought 
in Italy, from famous Carrara quarries, was 
received, but work stopped for lack of funds. 

In 1878, alien rule having been over- 
thrown, Legislature granted a spot on State 
House grounds and appropriated $650 to 
move base from Elmwood. Cornerstone laid 
March 27, 1879, and work finished on 
Memorial Day, May 10, 1879, the site 
being near the eastern end of State House, 
about 60 feet from front wall, and about 
100 feet from present location. 

Monument unveiled May 13, 1879. Oration 
of surpassing beauty and eloquence delivered 
by the foremost orator of the South, John S. 
Preston, of Columbia. 

Total expenses of the work were $11,761, 
collected by the women. 

The Monument when first erected was 40 
feet in height, base to top. The surmounting 
statue is a Confederate infantryman, seven feet 
and three inches high, on guard. On front of 



The Confederate Monument 149 



shaft is a Palmetto tree. On east side of the 
die block are navy emblems, and artillery 
emblems on the west. 

(The foregoing facts were obtained from an 
ojSicial pamphlet by Miss Isabel D. Martin, 
of Columbia, recording secretary of the as- 
sociation, published in 1879.) 

The Monument was struck by lightning 
several times, the last stroke, on Thursday, 
June 22, 1882, about 5 o'clock p. m., demolish- 
ing the figure. The original contractors were 
reemployed by the Association. On April 5, 
1884, the old base was removed to the present 
better and more conspicuous position, and on 
April 23 the cornerstone was laid, for the 
third time, with Masonic ceremonies. 

On May 9, 1884, the new statue (chiseled 
by Nicoli, of Carrara, "one of the finest 
sculptors in all Italy") was placed on the 
pedestal. The Columbia Flying Artillery fired 
a salute and ladies garlanded the base with 
flowers. 

Col. J. C. Hemphill wrote of it in the News 
and Courier at that time: "The new monu- 
ment is fully as handsome as the first, but 
different in several details. The soldier's hat 
has a broader rim, the canteen is different, the 

1 soldier's face is almost unchanged. The base 
of the monument has been raised about 
18 inches and the effect of this change is good." 

Mrs. A, T. Dargan, of Columbia, the only 
surviving member of the board of directors, 

1 informed the author that, in point of manly 
strength and beauty, the new face and figure 

I are not the equal of the original. 

THE INSCRIPTION 

I was prepared at the request of the direct- 
ors of the association bv William Henry 
Trescot, of Charleston, the most brilliant 
prose stylist of the South. His wonderful 
composition has been termed, by a noted 
scholar, "deathless poetry that may out- 
last the stone and marble of the monument 
itself." 

Although Mr, Trescot wrote lines for 
three faces of the die block, only two faces 
were available for engraving, and he accord- 
ingly designated the following (which is 
an exact copy of the lines as they appear 
on the monument) to be used:

The Women's Monument 151 



"WOMEN'S MONUMENT." 

Located just below South entrance to State 
House. "To the Memory of the Women of 
the Confederacy, 1861-65. Reared by the 
Men of their State, 1909-11." 

Historical 

Erected by Women's Monument Commission. 
Wilson & Sompayrac, of Columbia, archi- 
tects; Frederick W. Ruckstul, of New York, 
sculptor. 

The Base is of one solid 28,000-lb. block of 
Winnsboro granite, pronounced by Ruckstul 
as "one of the finest in the world," "on the 
finest site for a monument in South Carolina." 
The sculptor's effort was to honor the great 
middle class at the end of the war, with the 
central figure that of a woman of about 40 
years. The monument is partly realistic and 
partly symbolic. 

In 1909 the Legislature passed Maj. John 
G. Richard's Bill appropriating $7,500, on 
condition that an equal sum be raised by vol- 
untary contributions from the males. Five 
months and 21 days thereafter the Columbia 
State announced it had raised $11,000. 

The monument was unveiled at 1:22 o'clock 
p. m. on April 11, 1912. Gen. C. Irvine 
Walker, Chairman of the Commission, deliv- 
ered it into the keeping of the United Daugh- 
ters and Sons of the Confederacy and the 
address of acceptance was made by Arthur 
L. Gaston, of Chester, Commander of the 
Sons of Confederate Veterans. 

The oration by Joseph W. Barnwell, a 
distinguished lawj^er of Charleston (a mem- 
ber of the corps of Citadel cadets who vol- 
unteered for the war), was a notable pane- 
gyric. 

Gen. Eli Torrance, of Minneapolis, formerly 
commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of 
the Republic, sent two beautiful wreaths. 

THE INSCRIPTION. 

The Committee conducted a contest for the 
honor of writing the inscription. From the 
large number of compositions that came from 
various States, unsigned but numbered, the 
following, submitted by Capt, William E. 
Gonzales, editor of the Columbia State, was 
selected (exactly as it appears on the monu- 
ment) :

STATE FLOWER 
OF SOUTH CAROLINA 

THE YELLOW JESSAMINE 

Officially Adopted by the General Assembly 
i on February 1, 1924. 

REPORT OF S. C. SELECT LEGISLATIVE 
COMMISSION 

"The adoption of the Yellow Jessamine 
as the State Flower was the unanimous se- 
lection of the Engrossing Department of 
the General Assembly and the great ma- 
jority of the ladies of the State who ex- 
pressed a preference, and fervent interest has 
been manifested by many loyal and devoted 
citizens who revere our State and it is their 

I supreme desire that her pure symbol should 

! be the Yellow Jessamine, and we would rec- 
ommend the Yellow Jessamine for the fol- 
lowing reasons: 

"(1) It is indigenous to every nook and 

J corner of the State. 

"(2) It is the first premonitor of coming 

J spring. 

"(3) Its fragrance greets us first in the 
I woodland and its delicate flower suggests the 
f pureness of gold. 

' "(4) Its perpetual return out of the 
i dead winter suggests the lesson of constancy 

in, loyalty to, and patriotism in the service 

of the State. 



154 



The State Flower 



"Therefore, we respectfully recommend that 
the Yellow Jessamine be adopted as the State 
Flower of South Carolina. 

THOS. B. BUTLER, 

On the part of the Senate. 

GEO. B. ELLISON, 
T. S. HEYWARD, 

On the part of the House." 

"As fair as Southern Chivalry, 
As pure as truth, and shaped like stars. 
* * * * 

"No flower that blooms holds such perfume, 
As kindness and sympathy won. 
Wherever there grows the sheltering pine 
Is clinging a Yellow Jessamine vine." 

(From "Legend of the Yellow Jessamine," 
by Mrs. Teresa Strickland, of Anderson, S. C, 
when this flower was made the emblem oi 
Dixie Chapter, U. D. C, about 18 years ago.) 

The "Carolina, or Yellow Jessamine" is 
defined by the New International Encyclo- 
paedia as "a climbing plant which grows 
upon trees and fences and bears a profusion of 
yellow, funnel-shaped flowers an inch in di- 
ameter, with a fragrance similar to that of 
the true Jasmine." Its odor on a damp even- 
ing or morning fills the atmosphere with a 
rare and delicate sweetness. 



Emblems of Legislative Authority 155 



EMBLEMS OF 
LEGISLATIVE AUTHORITY. 

Facts concerning the Sword of State and the 
Mace used in the Senate and the House, 
respectively. 

The Sword of State. 

This sword hangs from front of Senate 
Rostrum during daily sessions and is carried 
by Sergeant-at-Arms on all State occasions. 
Facts as to its history were secured, as follows, 
from A. S. Salley, Jr., Secretary of the State 
Historical Commission : 

Earliest mention found is in Journal of 
the "Commons House of Assembly of South 
Carolina" for Friday, May 5, 1704, wherein 
it is stated that £26: lis: 3d (about $129) 
be paid for a Sword of State "for the Rt. 
Honl. the Governor, and all succeeding 
Governor's for the Hour, of this Government." 

The Governor and the eight deputies of the 
eight Lords Proprietors of Carolina consti- 
tuted the Upper House of the General As- 
sembly. The Sword of State was secured and 
used by the Grand Council until that body 
passed out of existence with the overthrow of 
the government of the Lords Proprietors in 
South Carolina in December 1719. 

Thereafter it was used by His Majesty's 
Council for South Carolina, at least until 
June 23, 1722, when Arthur Middleton, presi- 
dent of the Council, and acting Governor, in- 
formed the Commons House that it was "no 
way proper to be used by any of his Majesty's 
Governors" and suggested that the House give 
it to the "Corporation of Charles City (Charles- 
ton) and Port, to be carried before the Mayor." 
Says Mr. Salley: 

"Whether this suggestion was carried out 
and a new sword procured, the writer his so 
far been unable to ascertain, but throughout the 
records of His Majesty's Council for South 
Carolina down to the Revolution evidence is 
found of the use of a Sword of State." On 
March 26, 1776, South Carolina adopted a con- 
stitution independent of the government of 
Great Britain and elected John Rutledge presi- 
dent of the State. He was inaugurated on the 
following day, and the Journal of the Lower 



156 Emblems of Legislative Authority 



House records that his Excellency was 'pre- 
ceded by the Sheriff bearing the Sword of 
State and the Officers of the Legislative Coun- 
cil.' " 

"The same Sword of State," says Mr. Salley, 
"has been in constant use ever since, being 
borne by the Sergeant-at-Arms of the Senate 
instead of the Sheriff of Charleston District 
(now County) as then." 

"That this Sword of State was made in 
Charles Town (now Charleston) by a local 
silversmith is evidenced by the fact that it 
contains no hallmarks, which would not be 
the case had it been made in England." 



The Mace. 

This is the emblem of authority of the 
House of Representatives. Every day, upon 
the opening of the session by the Clerk call- 
ing the roll, the Sergeant-at-Arms bears the 
Mace ahead of the Speaker and lays it upon 
its specially prepared rack in front of the 
Speaker, where it remains until recess or ad- 
journment. Whenever the House officially 
attends in the Senate Chamber, and upon 
State occasions, the Mace is always borne at 
the head of the procession, and its appear- 
ance is greeted with far more deference than is 
the cry of "gangway." 

The following facts concerning the Mace are 
taken from Mr. Salley's official Bulletin No. 3 
of the Historical Commission of South Caro- 
lina : 

The Mace was made in London in 1756, as 
shown by the hallmarks thereon, by Magdalen 
Feline, and purchased by the "Commons House 
of Assembly of the province of South Carolina" 
for 90 guineas. The panels contain the royal 
arms of Great Britain, the arms of the House 
of Hanover, the arms of the province of South 
Carolina, and other insignia. 

Made of solid silver, with gold burnishing, 
and very much resembles the mace of the 
Common Council of Norwich, England. So 
far as Mr. Salley is able to learn it is the only 
mace in use in the United States that ante- 
dates the Revolution. In the diary of Joseph 
Quincy, Jr., of Massachusetts, it is recorded 
that on March 19, 177P>, he visited the House 



Emblems of Legislative Auth ority 157 



in Charleston and saw the mace, "a very su- 
perb and elegant one," on the table before the 
Speaker. 

During the Revolution this mace was ap- 
propriated by British sympathizers who offered 
it for sale to the House of Assembly of the 
Bahama Islands. The records of that body 
show that authority was given to purchase it, 
but show no further action. Mr. Salley's 
article declares that "as a matter of fact" it 
was not purchased and that the mace now in 
Nassau was made in London 43 years after 
the South Carolina mace was made. 

Mr. Salley disproves the "silly twaddle" 
about the South Carolina mace being the mace 
of the British House of Commons which Crom- 
well referred to as a "bauble." 

From the time the mace disappeared from 
its place in the old State House in Charles 
Town, during the latter part of the Revolu- 
tion, to 1819, its whereabouts was known to 
only a very few. "In 1819 when the Hon. 
Langdon Cheves, of South Carolina, went to 
Philadelphia, as president of the Bank of the 
United States, he found it in a vault of the 
bank and restored it to its rightful owners." 

In a letter to Mr. Salley, the Hon. James 
Simons, of Charleston, Speaker of the House, 
states that the "mace was not used after the 
war until I became Speaker, when I had it 
brought up into the House and used for the 
purposes for which it was intended."

SOUTH CAROLINA'S PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM 

has had a rather slow and troublesome growth, 
largely due to lack of money. But few, if 
any, of the States have made any more pro- 
gress than South Carolina has for the last 
ten J^ears, though the State is nearly at the 
bottom of the ladder. An awakening spirit 
is bringing more money into the schools, 
which are growing hy leaps and bounds. 
There are 1988 school districts in the State, 
less than 100 being without special tax. 
These levies range from two to forty-two mills. 

1923 was first year in history of depart- 
ment when white enrollment exceeded negro 
enrollment. This is explained by extensive 
negro exodus, absence of attendance officer and 
effects of boll weevil. 

One-teacher schools are rapidly giving way 
to consolidated schools. Beautiful, substan- 
tial, modern buildings are found everywhere 
and building is more active than ever before. 
There are 11,003 teachers employed, instruct- 
ing 462,880 pupils. 

The department expended on schools last 
year approximately $2,000,000, which was se- 
cured by direct Legislative appropriation and 
by donations by the General Education Board, 
Julius Rosenwald Fund and by the State's 
quota under the Smith-Hughes Act. 

High Schools are making the most phenom- 
enal growth. There are now 251 State-aided 
high schools, with an enrollment in the high 
school grades of 26,369. Of these 6,477 live 
outside high school districts, many of whom 
could not attend except for the liberal tuition 
law. 

There are 4,000 boys attending agricultural 
classes, 1,310 men and boys attending indus- 
trial classes, and 2,876 girls attending home 
economics classes, all under Smith-Hughes 
regulations. The National Government con- 
tributed to this work last year $55,374. 

There are enrolled in the adult and night 
schools 6,428. There are 937 school im- 
provement associations, with a membership of 
16,000. These associations raised $59,161.35. 

Greatest need of the department is a new 
State-aid law to take the place of the eight 
conflicting, confusing State-aid laws now in 
force. Very few school men and fewer lay- 



state Officers 



167 



men know what the laws are and besides the 
money expended under them does not always 
reach the sections where it is most needed. 
Our school law is a crazy quilt that has ren- 
dered wonderful service, but is now worn out.

Camp Jackson continues to be retained by 
War Department as a permanent military 
\ reservation for future mobilization. 

Columbia Chamber of Commerce in April, 
1922, began movement to regain for Colum- 
bia 1,192 acres of this land, this acreage rep- 
resenting the gift of citizens of Columbia to 
War Department for use as a camp. 



230 TJ. S. Military Organization 



The Fulmer Bill (H. R. 490), authorizing 
Secretary of War to deed 1,192 acres to 
trustees named by Chamber of Commerce has 
been favorably reported by Military Affairs 
Committee and its passage in March is ex- 
pected. 

The National Guard of South Carolina and 
the State Highway Commision now have con- 
siderable land at the camp. It is proposed by 
another bill in Congress to make of the re- 
mainder of the reservation a National Forest. 
This Bill, introduced by Representative Ful- 
mer, is now in hands of Public Lands Com- 
mittee. The camp contains about 23,000 
acres. 

The buildings and equipment at the camp 
were sold recently for $265,000.00 to Harris 
Bros., of Chicago. This concern, with head- 
quarters at the camp, is now tearing down 
the buildings. It is estimated that it will 
take two years to raze the barracks and 
warehouses. 

The Army has one officer and six enlisted 
men stationed at the camp. In addition, there 
are about twenty civilian employees acting 
as guards and doing clerical work for the 
Government.

Commanding — Major John Potts. 

Marine Barracks, Parrls Island, S. C. 

The U. S. Reservation includes all of 
Parris Island, Gibbes Island and Horse Island, 
total acreage 6,500, of which some 3,000 
acres are tide-covered marsh land. 

Post designed and built up to serve as 
training station on Atlantic coast for Marine 
Corps recruits, and its lay-out, climate, health 
conditions, surroundings, etc., make it an 
ideal location therefor, as well as for train- 
ing of aviators. Climate and soil are such 
that drills, rifle firing, outdoor instructions, 
etc., can be carried on practically every day 
of year. Soil and surrounding waters a^^e 
such that both land and sea-planes take 
the air and land throughout twelve months 
of the year. 

There is a large and exceptionally good 
rifle range for all kinds of rifle, automatic 
rifle, machine gun, and pistol practice. There 
are targets for rifle, automatic rifle and 
machine gun practice, up to 1,000 yards, 
and 20 targets for pistol practice. Arrange- 
ments could probably be made for use of 
the Range by state organizations. 

Health conditions exceptionally good, the 
admission rate to sick list at this station 
being lower than any station in naval ser- 
vice with a complement of 1,000 or more. 

In addition to regular military buildings 
of the post, there is a Naval Prison for naval 
general court-martial prisoners who have 



232 77. S. Military Organization 



been tried for strictly military offenses, and 
this institution is a model of its kind; also 
an exceptionally well kept naval hospital, with 
bed accommodations for 191 patients. 

Number of men for training during 1923, 
approximately 4,406 ; average strength of 
permanent personnel and men under train- 
ing 1,803. After training is completed, men 
are transferred to duty with organizations 
of Marine Corps where required, but gen- 
erally to foreign tropical service, or to ser- 
vice on board ships of Navy.

THE LEGISLATIVE POWER 

OF THE STATE OF 

SOUTH CAROLINA 

Is vested (under the Constitution adopted in 
Convention December 4, 1895), in the 
"Senate" and the "House of Representa- 
tives," together styled the "General As- 
sembly." 



Some Constitutional Provisions Pertaining to 
Members and Legislation 

Annual Sessions — In Columbia, beginning on 
the second Tuesday in January. No limi- 
tation to length of session, which by cus- 
tom has usually been 40 days. It lasted 
47 days in 1919, 54 days in 1920, 54 days 
in 1921, 61 days in 1922, 75 days in 1923, 
75 days in 1924 (including a recess of 
15 days upon convening), 87 days in 1925 
and 67 days in 1926. 

ADJOURNMENTS — During the session "neither 
House shall, without the consent of the 
other, adjourn for more than three days, 
nor to any other place than that in which 
it shall be at the time sitting." — Art. Ill, 
Sec. 21. 

Should either House remain without a quorum 
for 5 days, or should the two Houses dis- 
agree as to the time of adjournment, the 
Governor may adjourn them to such time 
as he shall think proper. — Art. IV. Sec. 16. 

Bills and Acts — "Bills for raising revenue 
shall originate in the House of Repre- 
sentatives." 

"Bills appropriating money out of the 
treasury shall specify the objects and pur- 
poses for which the same are made, and 
appropriate to them respectively their sev- 
ral amounts in distinct items and sections." 

"Every Act shall relate to but one sub- 
ject and that shall be expressed in the 
title."

Constitutional Provisions 



Bills shall not have the force of law 
until read three times and on three several 
days in each House, the great seal of the 
State affixed, and signed by the President 
of the Senate and the Speaker of the 
House. Legislative rules may (and they 
do) provide for the first and third read- 
ings by title only. 

Deficiency — When the ordinary expenses of 
the State exceed the income the General 
Assembly shall provide a tax levy for the 
ensuing year to pay the deficiency. — Art. 
X, Sec. 2. 

Elections by General Assembly or Either 
House — Members shall vote viva voce ex- 
cept by unanimous consent, and their 
votes shall be recorded upon the Journal. 

Expulsion of Members — "Each House shall 
punish its members for disorderly behavior, 
and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, 
expel a member, but not a second time for 
the same cause." 

Holding Two Offices — "No person shall be 
eligible to a seat in the General Assembly 
while he holds any office or position of 
profit or trust under this State, the United 
States of America, or any of them, or under 
any other power, except offices in the Mili- 
tia and notaries public; and if any mem- 
ber shall accept or exercise any of the said 
disqualifying offices or positions he shall 
vacate his seat." — Const., Art. Ill, Sec. 24. 

Members Protected — "Members shall be pro- 
tected in their persons and estates during 
their attendance on, going to and return- 
ing from the General Assembly, and ten 
days previous to the sitting and ten days 
after the adjournment," except where a 
Member is "charged with treason, felony or 
breach of the peace." 

Oath of Office — All Members and all officers, 
before they enter upon their duties, shall 
subscribe to the following oath: "I do 
solemnly swear (or affirm) that I am duly 
qualified according to the Constitution of 
this State, to exercise the duties of the 
office to which I have been elected (or ap- 
pointed), and that I will, to the best of my 



Constitutional Provisions 9 



ability, discharge the duties thereof, and 
preserve, protect and defend the Consti- 
tution of this State and of the United 
States. I do further solemnly swear (or 
affirm) that I have not since the first day 
of January, in the year 1881, engaged in 
a duel as principal or second or other- 
wise; and that I will not, during the term 
of office to which I have been elected (or 
appointed), engage in a duel as princi- 
pal or second or otherwise. So help me 
God." 

Right of Punishment — Each House may 
punish by imprisonment during its sitting 
any non-member giiilty of disrespect, dis- 
orderly or contemptuous behavior in its 
presence, or who shall threaten harm to 
any member for anything said or done in 
either House, or who, shall assault or ar- 
rest any person ordered to attend the 
House, in going or returning, or who shall 
rescue any person arrested by order of the 
House. 

Terms of Office — "The terms of office of 
Members chosen at a general election begin 
on the Monday following such election." 

Veto by the Governor — Every Bill or Joint 
Resolution which shall have passed the 
General Assembly shall, before it becomes 
a law, be presented to the Governor, and 
if he approves it he shall sign it. 

Any Bill vetoed by the Governor shall 
be returned, with his objections, to the 
House in which it originated. If two- 
thirds of that House agree, by yeas and 
nays, to pass it, it shall be sent to the 
other House, and if similarly approved 
thereby it shall have the same effect as if 
signed by the Governor. 

Only so much of the Bill as is not 
approved by the Governor shall be re- 
considered, the approved portions becom- 
ing a law. 

A Bill not returned by the Governor 
within three days after presentation to 
him, Sundays excepted, shall have the 
same force and effect as if he had signed 
it, unless the General Assembly, by ad- 
journment, prevent its return, in which 



10 Constitutional and Statutory Provisions 



case it shall have such force and effect 
unless returned within two days after the 
next meeting. 

(Governor may return Bill to the "next" 
House, even though a general election has 
intervened — Supreme Court decision, Smith 
V. Jennings, -67 S. C. 324.) 

(At 1919 session, which began Jan. 14, 
Governor returned Bill to Clerk of House 
on Jan. 16, after House had adjourned. 
Upon objection to its consideration on 
Jan. 17, Speaker Cothran ruled that the 
two-day Constitutional limit had been com- 
plied with, citing Corwin v. Comp. Gen. 
6 S. C. 398.) 

Special Statutory Provisions 

Compensation of Members — $400 for each 
session (regular and special), 5 cents per

sessions the Speaker or the President shall 
designate some member of such committee 
to serve on the board until the next meeting 
or the disability is removed.

seded, nor any office theretofore abolished."

clude the last.) .1 



Membership in the Two Houses 11 



THE SENATE 

Composed of one Member elected from each 
of the 46 counties four years, so classified 
that one-half are chosen every two years. 
"When the General Assembly shall estab- 
lish more than one county at any session, 
it shall so prescribe the first term of the 
Senators from such counties as to ob- 
serve such classification." 

Senators must be duly qualified electors in 
their own Counties at the time of their 
election, and must be at least 25 years old. 

THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES 

Composed of 124 Members chosen every second 
year, assigned to the several Counties so as 
to allow "one Representative to every 124th 
part of the whole number of inhabitants in 
the State," which ratio under the 1920 
U. S. Census is one Representative to 
every 13,578 persons in a county. 

Under the new reapportionment Act of 
1922, the counties of Florence and Rich- 
land each gained one member, and Bamberg 
and Marlboro each lost one. 

Each County constitutes one Election Dis- 
trict. Members must be qualified electors 
in their own Counties at the time of their 
election, and must be at least 21 years old.

Definitioji of Measures 



ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS 

1 



"Resolution" < 

A Resolution (sometimes called a "plain" ' 
or "simple" Resolution) affects only the ac- 
tion of the House in which it is introduced ( 
and the members thereof. Requires only one ^ 
reading and adoption. J 

"Concurrent Resolution" 

A"Concurrent Resolution" affects the ac- 
tion of the entire General Assembly or a ■ 
member thereof ; does not carry an appropria- ; 
tion; does not have the force of law as an ; 
Act does, but records the sense of the two i 
Houses concurrently; requires only one read- j 
ing and adoption by each House. \ 

"Act" I 

An Act has the force of law until repealed, 5 
and is known as a permanent measure. The ' 
Bill for such Act must be read three times 
on three separate days in each House, follow- 
ing which the title is ordered changed to that 
of an Act. 

"Joint Resolution" 

A Joint Resolution has the same force of 
law as an Act, but is a temporary measure, 
dying when its subject matter is completed. 
It requires the same treatment as a Bill does 
in its passage through both Houses, but its 1 
title is not changed.

^Supreme Court Decision 

"When the Constitution speaks of 'two- 
thirds of that House' as the vote required to 
pass a bill or joint resolution over the veto 
of the Governor, it means two-thirds of the 
house as then legally constituted and acting 
upon the matter. Whenever the framers of 
the Constitution intended otherwise, the pur- 
pose was expressly declared, as in Art. XV, 
Sec. 1, 'a vote of two-thirds of all members 
elected shall be required for an impeachment,' 
and in Art. XVI, Sec. 1, where, in proposing 
amendments to the Constitution, 'two-thirds of 
the members elected to each house' must agree 
thereto." Smith v. Jennings, 67 S. C, page 
328.

THE STATE HOUSE 



A collaboration of original research work among 
legislative documents and a special article 
for the MANUAL by C. C. Wilson, of Co- 
lumbia, the last architect of the building. 



Mr. Wilson declares that South Carolina's 
State House is "one of the notable buildings 
of the world". It was designed by Major John 
R. Niernsee, whom death prevented from car- 
rying out what he said was "his life work", 
and in vital particulars his plans were after- 
wards departed from. 

On December 15, 1851, the cornerstone for 
a "Fire Proof Building" was laid, and in 1852 
the General Assembly appropriated $50,000 to 
complete it and to begin the next section as 
a "New State Capitol". P. H. Hammarskold 
was the architect, and in May 1854 he was 
dismissed for "concealments and misrepresenta- 
tions and general dereliction of duty." 

On August 3, Niernsee was elected architect. 
He reported the work and materials defective 
and wholly unsuitable and the work was taken 
down, with a total loss of $72,267. 

The General Assembly ordered the location 
of the new building changed, with the wings ex- 
tending east and west, as at present. Niernsee 
planned to complete the building in five years. 
In 1857 it had advanced to the top of the base- 
ment window heads. 

On October 1, 1860, he reported the "abso- 
lute value of work put into the building" to 
be $1,240,063, and the structure having ad- 
vanced to nearly 66 feet above the foot of the 
foundation. "The Corinthian granite capitals, 
some 64, are being executed in a style and 
finish heretofore unequalled in that line". (Mr. 
Wilson characterizes this work as "wonderful, 
nothing finer in France or Italy".) 

Work was suspended when Sherman's army 
destroyed Columbia on February 17, 1865. 
Only slight damage was done to the building 
by the shells, as the cannon were of light cal- 
ibre, but the destruction to finished marble 
work and rough materials was reported by 
Niernsee as amounting to $700,000. He de- 
scribed the loss of his plans and documents re-

SOUTH CAROLINA ] 

STATE OFFICE BUILDING ' 

1 

Built and financed by the State Sinking 
Fund Commission, under authority of legis-, 
lative Acts of 1924 and 1926. ^ 

Authors: 1924 Act — J. R. Bellamy, G. b| 
Ellison, W. L. Gray, Olin Sawyer; 1926 Act — ■ 
W. H. Keith, Jas. H. Sullivan, R. Milo Smith, 
A. G, Westbrook, Marion E. Winter. ] 

Sinking Fund Commission: Thos. G. Mc^ 
Leod, Governor and Chairman ; M. J, Miller, 
Secretary; Walter E, Duncan, ComptroUeii 
General, 1924-'25; A, J, Beattie, Comptroller 
General, 1925-'26; S. M. Wolfe, Attorney Gen^ 
eral, 1924-'25 ; J. M. Daniel, Attorney Genj 
eral, 1925-'26; S. T. Carter (deceased), Stat^ 
Treasurer, 1924-'26; J. H. Scarborough, Stat^ 
Treasurer, 1926-'27; Claude N. Sapp (1924) 
and Carroll D. Nance (1925-'26), chairmen 6i 
the Ways and Means Committee; H. H. Gross] 
chairman of the Finance Committee. 

After purchasing the lot (southwest corner oJ \ 
Senate and Sumter streets, in Columbia) from 
Trinity Episcopal Church and B. F. P. Leap 
hart for $51,891.19, the Commission selected 
as architect Harold Tatum, of Columbia, whose 
preliminary sketches were accepted in June. 
1924. 

Detailed working drawings and specifications 
prepared in the architect's office (under the di 
rect supervision of Jas. E. Hunter, Jr., whc ' 
is also the Assistant Clerk of the House oJ 
Representatives) were issued to contractors 
for bidding in December, 1924. 

The plans were prepared with the view ol 
carrying out the mandatory requirement of th( 
original Act to provide a building sufficieni 
to house all State Departments, and, as th( 
bids received were in excess of the $500, 00( 
limitation therein, the General Assembly was 
asked in 1925 to increase the amount tc 
$800,000. Bills introduced therefor failed tc 
pass, and accordingly the plans were revised: j 
the two top stories being eliminated. I 

A contract was finally let to the Geo. Aj 
Fuller Company, of Washington, D. C, lowi 
bidder under the original plans, and plumbing 
and heating contracts to W. B. Guimarin «
